The imminent danger of paper airplanes and GOP conventions

By Kurt Michael

Sometimes in life we take ourselves too seriously. No one knew this better than President Ronald Reagan who poked fun of himself and others in many of his speeches. Reagan’s humor was never mean-spirited and was a welcomed relief during stressful times. With that said, I appreciate the graphic printed at the bottom of this year’s 2014 Republican State Convention Program.

As the story goes, at last year’s convention in Richmond, many of the delegates were chastised for throwing paper airplanes. They were told that the paper planes, with their sharp noses, could hit the projector screen and cause damage.

The solution for this year’s convention was simple instructions printed at the bottom of page 13 on how to construct the snub-nosed paper airplane. This proves once again that Republicans can solve any problem regardless of how complex. See image below.
